Bird Nest-Day 24

I cannot believe that the robin built a nest just 24 days ago and look how it's progressed! As the babies get older, the mama and daddy bird are really getting protective! Just today I was outside between the garage and the house. I was probably 60 feet away from the nest and not even in the view of the birds when one of the birds chased me into my front door! I was sooo scared! lol

I can be so far away and they'll just fly at me! So I had to send Chris out for today's photos! lol It was a funny sight watching them chirp and chirp and fly at his head! lol It's hard to believe that they hatched just 6 days ago! They'll soon be able to leave the nest!
He tried getting some action shots as they were flying at him and he captured this action shot.
Here's another shot of one of them sitting in the tree above his head. He's a lot braver than I am, and I'm thankful that he takes these photos for me!
Oh and I forgot to mention that whenever the bird chased me inside the house I was in the kitchen talking to my mom on the phone and the bird landed outside the window and was making a huge fuss! I guess it doesn't like me any longer and only seems to do this to me! lol Chris jokes and says it's because I didn't get their permission to post these photos online and they're mad! lol

They don't seem to bother my little dog Allie. She can get close to the playset, and even bark at the birds and they don't care. I can't wait to see their reaction in the next couple of days when Chris has to mow the grass! That will be exciting, I'll be sure to post photos of that!

You are so funny! What happened to your umbrella? I thought you were using that as bird protection LOL I only see two birds, so I'm assuming that the third egg was not viable. Well, thankfully you got two!

Gosh doesn't seem like they are this old now...Seems like yesterday you showed us the nest...time flies. I know you will be sad when they fly off but happy at the same time because of new life.

I want to see that new Richard Gere movie also...love him like you do!
